Type LECTURE
Course Description What are the processes driving social change in contemporary cities? How are urban spaces structured in power? This course introduces some of the main concepts, theories, and ideas of contemporary scholarship in urban political economy, with a focus on the history and institutions of New York City. We will approach urban politics and economy from a geographic and historical perspective in order to arrive at some consensus conclusions about how urban spaces and places are made. While New York City will be a primary focus, we will read case studies and history on other cities as well. Throughout the course we will emphasize the structural implications of class, race, and gender.
